Please provide a story of one or more specific pets this grant helped.
We accepted a mother Pit Bull from a town a couple hours away from us due to the city ordinance of euthanizing all Pit Bull Terriers. She was a skinny and shy mother with 8 puppies. Once she arrived at the shelter we made sure to vaccinate her, and got her placed into a foster home that same day. She and her puppies continued to thrive in the foster home. The shelter staff visited the foster home twice in order to make sure the puppies were current on their Distemper vaccine, and deworming. We were able to find homes for all of the animals before they even came back into the shelter for spaying/neutering!
